Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies feels he would be deserving of an OBE should the Reds earn promotion to the Premier League this season. The experienced Scot has the Reds well-placed to win promotion, as they currently sit third in the Championship.

Success has been achieved with a thin squad, with injuries having rocked the Reds at crucial times.

"If we can finish the job off, it'll be a remarkable achievement," Davies said.

"If that happens, I'll get an MBE, an OBE and a visit to see the Pope.

"At Derby and Preston (his former clubs) the squads were much deeper at this stage. We're punching above our weight but we're proud of what we've done."
